Home SWEET home!

So it clearly has been quite some time since I've been on here. What a semester it's been! The time has gone by so fast!! I have been LOVING my time in ARIZONA!! I love everything about it! The girls here are amazing.. they have become a family to me! At U of A we have 80 Alphas and at ASU we have 55. We are quite busy out here with alpha sessions, preparing for initiation, participating in War of Roses, date dashes, planning Parents Weekend, and homecoming festivities.

Let me do some introductions:

Delta Gamma Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi
University of Arizona, 2010

There are currently 233 members of the Delta Gamma Chapter. That's a ton of people for the record! They are precious! We have 54 girls that live in the house. Below is what I know as home.. or the Pi Palace!

This is me and Regan in front of the house!

Anyway, I feel very fortunate to be here! It's crazy how I ended up here, but like they always say, everything truly does happen for a reason!! Thank you ADPi and thank you Delta Gamma Chapter! I can't imagine life anywhere else!

I stole this from MegGar

Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special. Dont set your goals by what other people deem important.

Only you know what is best for you. Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless.

Don't let life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.

Don't give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying. Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is this fragile thread that binds us to each other. Don't be afraid to encounter risks.

It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave. Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to find. The quickest way to recieve love is to give love. The fasest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it wings. Don't dismiss your dreams.

To be without dreams is to be without hope; to be without hope is to be without purpose. Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only where you've been, but also where you're going. Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.
